How to make working from home better for you, and make an injury claim against your last employer
After you have been working from home for a few months you should have a good grasp of what it takes to work from home successfully, and whether this is right for you or not. Not everyone is built for working from home, and just because you find it difficult doesn’t mean that you are less intelligent or dedicated than people who can work from home, it just means that you are built differently and much prefer being in an office or other workplace.
However, there are reasons that you might struggle with working from home which actually are quite easy to solve, as long as you know how.
- Make sure you go out often. This doesn’t just mean going out in the evenings to see friends, but also things like going to the gym a couple of days a week, getting out to see family members or go to meetings and so on. If you are sat in the house most of the time it is very easy to start feeling trapped or bored and lonely.
- Be your own boss. This doesn’t mean in the sense that you are already your own boss, you actually need to make the effort to be a boss, so that you are strict with yourself and impose deadlines and strict rules to keep you working. This may not seem fun at the time, but in the long run will do wonders for your career.
- Do your research. Before you even begin working from home, you should research how best to work from home and strategies for making your business a success so that you have a business plan to follow.
- Take breaks. Many people working from home will forget to take breaks because they aren’t enforced, but working too long can actually make it more difficult for you to do your work, so you do need to take breaks.
